Hi guys,

I may consider to move to Singapore but I would like to know how is there the work culture, especially from people that have moved from Europe to Singapore. It is worth it?

I'm working 10 years in the IT sector as Business Analyst and Project Manager, what is the expected salary?

In my country In Singapore
Working hours per week 42 ?
Working from 7am to 4pm ?
Holidays per year 20 days ?

I've been a few times in Singapore for holiday and I love this city but I assume that living there it is different. How it was for you?

I moved from Europe to Australia 2 years ago and I don't like it, especially the people are rude and environment is not safety. I would never walk here in the evening in a suburb. How is it in Singapore?

Singapore is one of the safest country.

Expect something around 7-8k atleast for a month (annual should be more than 100k sgd)

Work culture is different and some times, more than 42 hours in a week.

Having said that, it differs from case to case...bt wrk culture is not like as in europe or aus.

this is an individual decision that only you can make for yourself.

google singapore salary surveys, which are regularly published by several consultancies and headhunters, to find out what you can expect in your industry, job title, seniority.

in my country in singapore
working hours per week 42 ?
by contract most likely 40-44h/week, in reality seldom less than 50h/week. And it's probably the least workaholic country in asia!

working from 7am to 4pm ?
most people start work late and stay even later - if your company has flex time (some local ones don't!).

holidays per year 20 days ?
anything between 7 days/year (the legal minimum) to 20 days/year.in your industry and level probably 14 or 16 days/year.

how it was for you?
i was there for 12 years and liked it, but others i knew didn't.

how is it in singapore?
everywhere is safe and most people behave reasonably.
